The Ortovox Swisswool Classic Mitts are classic 100% wool mittens. These are the ultimate old-school handwarmers, much beloved by everyone from Scottish winter climbers to Everest summiteers. These are the perfect mitts to keep in your pack and slip on over a pair of thinnies at cold belays or when the temperature really starts to drop. They're also great for ski tourers in the coldest conditions when combined with a shell over-mitt.
Swisswool Classic Mitts feature no membrane and as such are not water or wind-proof but when used on snow the outside of the glove frosts up and forms a protective layer keeping the wind and moisture at bay. Counter-intuitively with these mitts snowy hands can be warmer hands.
